will be out there to encourage people on how to use the data to create applications, devices, etc.. >> i have been thinking. this whole book came up with this idea. leadership. my father used to talk to me. think about what the former president of czechoslovakian, jon mcconaughey, and others had in common at their peak. a pretty good liner -- bundy -- ghandi, and others had in common. they all went to jail. you can argue that mandela and others, when they became president of their countries, they lose some of that moral authority as they had to navigate this. so my point is what about citizenship? what about active citizenship? we do not just want to rebroadcast to come vote, and then have a two-year cycle of broadcasting or a four-year cycle. we want to be actively engaged in the process. this idea of open transparency, putting up data, it is all about active citizen participation. remarkable things happen when you provide access to information. people will do extraordinarily good things with it. tavis: we have to engage fellow citizens on their own terms or at their level. >> and that is th

and even triple dip recessions, violence and riots etc. etc., there is a widespread sense i see that what europe is experience king is more of a recession. instead i think there's a sense that western europe present economic crisis reflects some deeper traumas. and not terminally because of external pressures but rather the inherent contradictions and his functionalities encouraged by what i call european economic culture overlong period of time. all of that is to say that if america's economic culture as i call it continues to drift in the same direction, i think we can assume faithfully that over time some trends that you see in europe will start to manifest themselves in the united states and that i think is what america means when they use phrases like europeanization or we are becoming like europe. today i want to do three things. the first thing i want to do is explain what i mean by the phrase becoming europe. the second thing i want to do is to sketch out where some similar trends are manifesting themselves in the united states and since i'm at the heritage foundation and in the s

teachers have no control over such as kids' home life, poverty level, etc. >> look, they are absolutely right. we have kids who come to school every day facing enormous challenges. nobody put them to bed the night before at a decent hour, nobody fed them breakfast before they came to school, maybe the electricity got turned off in their house, and they couldn't do their homework. when you are facing these challenges, does it make it harder to learn and, therefore, does it make it harder the teach those kids? absolutely. 100%. but can it be an excuse for why kids aren't achieving? no way. and this is, this is what i think is the thing ha we have to understand in this -- that we have to understand in this country right now. the u.s. ranks towards the bottom internationally on social mobility. which means if you are a child who is born into poverty in this country the likelihood that you will ever escape poverty is not good. that, in my mind, goes against every single ideal we hold as americans. that is not the way our country is supposed to work. this is the the greatest country in the wo

and etc. etc. and all of the things that need to be improved and revisited. am i too conservative? is this the time to put that extra in there? >> it is an interesting question. i think that the kind of limit on your time is largely due to the number of projects that you can see in any given week. it did not appear to us that any commission staffing that is solely devoted needs to increase, but somebody of the other functions in the department are supporting the commission indirectly, like the communications person and the admin staff and so on. those positions are not 100 percent devoted to the commission but they do spend the time as do so many of the staff on the commission items. so it is hard to quantify how much of the department is spent solely on the commission time or partially on commission time verses other things. let me just make or create a discussion only. and we have not at all talked about it. i understand, reading the paper, that you have significant support from the mayor's office. for additional staffing for larger levels of efficiency within the department, et

and etc., and then identifying the characteristics and so when that information manual comes that we promised you and it was suggested by our vendors that the mayor's office of disability would be able to have actual good information. so this is just one of many things that we are doing that is part of the collaboration. part of the monthly meetings that we have with the vendors and the daily interaction that we have with them and the inspector has. it absolutely makes me so happy when i see one of the inspecters get their heads together with any one of the vendor and they are talking and collaborating and the true spirit of what this program was actually meant to do and so with that i am going to stop and introduce jamie and all of the people here so they can tell you more about what they have been doing. >> thank you and good morning, commissioners, the code enforcement out reach program was created in 1996 by the building inspection commission. in order to bring our housing services to san francisco ans living in substan ard living conditions. over the last 17 years, this program

options the shared bike assess and the bicycle tracks which requires the curb changes etc. the bicycle track option is approximately a 10 percent more expensive than the shared bike options. am i reading that correctly? >> yeah, that's correct. >> that's actually very encouraging if one were to take the position to take the bicycle path is a good thing. i know with one of the down sides to having that bicycle track as opposed to the shared lane is the costs of the shared lanes but the cost 10 percent is not a dramatic enable >> yeah, that's correct and there's costs obviously going to mission street there are costs. the main kind of down side is that it eats into the sidewalk. to the ability to use the sidewalks is more limited are there's a cost compact but it also has the strongest point is that market street is a nature place for cycle folks to go. so that's a very strong selling point. >> but this 10 percent differential between the two we can have a policy debate about what the sidewalk and bicycle assess etc., as opposed to this is going to so dramatically increase the costs

more and more every day about what he knew and what he did and what they try to hide, etc., etc., and with all respect to that cardinal, he gets to go and cast a vote? that is stunning to me. >> you are certainly not alone, and many feel that he should not be allowed to participate in this event. with the recent events here in los angeles, and we see how documents continue to demonstrate how he was so complicit in the cover-up of the sex abuse scandal locally in los angeles, and he has been relieved of his duties, right, i personally find it incredibly problematic that he would be able to participate in this election. it is disturbing. bottom line, it is disturbing. tavis: you are still a practicing catholic. >> i am. >> -- tavis: why? >> first of all, i was raised catholic as part of my identity, for sure, but i also feel that when you see something that needs to change, you cannot make that change from the outside. seeing the change that needs to happen in the catholic church, to remain part of that structure for change, and i see that as part of my own mission. tavis: do you

taken the first steps of you know, contacting their landlord and perhaps, even writing letters, etc. and we are able then to sort of help them navigate through the system and get in contact with dbi when we need to. and then, as jamie mentioned work with the land lords as well. we contact the apartment association in some cases and have them sort of work on the other end speaking to the landlord complying with codes and all of that. and we have had great success. the other thing that it allows us to do is a little bit of a more of a case management model. some of our counseling that we do it is really where we are only able to sort of do an in and out and advise them a little bit and send them on the way and with this, we are able to do follow up calls and we send out post cards saying has your issue been resolved and we will track the cases thoroughly. if the people are not getting anywhere, we are able to escalate through the dbi system if we need to or keep helping them work with the landlord. i think that it provides a great service not just to the community and the tenants but

that the capitol budget will meet our basic needs and fund a pair of facilities just as j935 and etc. and so that these facilities continue to be safe and in operational use, if they are unforeseen spending requirements whether environmental that require immediate corrective action or unfunded requirements for benefits this could force the trade offs with the capitol budget. i believe that the port commission has done a good job dreking with the policies and directing limited precious resources to the water front and improvement, just this morning, port staff did receive confirmation that affirmed our credit a rating, just finished the review in connection with our 36 million series, 2008, and 200 d bonds. the port notes are stable structure, strong financial profile and policies and great location and the reverse revenue streams and the ratings continue to be that we have notified the completing to our deferred capitol. i believe with the continued financial stewardship and with the creative trifnging it will create the partnerships to develop a more complete solution to the backlog. >> wit

the restaurants etc., but we're working with the exhibit in the coliseum and the various stakeholders that everyone is aware and has an opportunity to participate >> and my last comment is we're celebrating the rich past and they should know we're so busy today carving a new future and the 7 and a half miles whether it's the music or the open space of whether it's some of the major real estate projects and hopefully, this celebration we can portray the water front what it means to the city. and we're redeveloping the skyline so hopefully, we're con varying that exist of what we'll be doing over the next several years >> following up on chairmans comments. i can see in the future this city is going beyond san francisco. everybody this is going to be - we'll no longer be san francisco. everything in this water front will be in the bay area. what we have here in the bay area everybody will benefit. they don't have a crews terminal but it will be named after the president of our union and we have a great leader in the union and he's given back. and as the future we're creating mayor lee

: will these private companies, banks, etc., have to participate in the cybersecurity enhancement? >> guest: well, i think that for the most part it will be a voluntary and collaborative process with industry for them to participate. um, if you sort of look through the executive order and follow how the framework is laid out, first, you have nist leading a collaborative process with industry to develop the framework. and then the department of homeland security will set up a voluntary program to encourage adoption of that framework. at the same time, the primary regulators in the federal government will look at their regulations and requirements and assess them relative to that framework that nist has developed. and if they believe that their regulations or requirements are not, are not sufficient in that area, then they will -- they could, in neary, impose -- in theory, impose new regulations or executive actions that would require infrastructure to be brought up to that level. i finish but i think you will find it's going to be a voluntary process for companies to participate. >> host: there are s

later on. we really thought that we would, you know, travel and do a lot of things together, etc., etc., and then when the time was right, we'd figure, you know, we'd talk about it then. and then one day, it was like, is this going to be a nursery or is this going to be a guest room? tracey garamone: and i went for my annual doctor's appointment and said we're thinking about it and next thing you know, the next month, it happened. well, there's no question that if we take from the very beginning, planning a pregnancy is far more likely to yield a good outcome than an unplanned pregnancy for a variety of reasons. not every woman is perfectly healthy. doctor: tracey? not ever woman understands that, for example, you can reduce the chance of having a neural tube defect by taking folic acid in the pre-conceptual and the early conceptual period. if you wait until you're pregnant, it's often too late, to, in fact, impact any change on the outcomes. tracey garamone: well, i was in fairly good physical shape. i take vitamins that are equal to, if not better than prenatals, so i was set up for

of tennis, etc., etc., but set meaning set your hair. but it was the word with the most meanings. so i realized that the soft underbelly of the begin us in book was language, was words. so i started working on a collection of words for drunk, and i have now gone through about seven or eight collections. in fact, there are people in this room who have, actually, added to the collection in the last 72 hours. but we're now up to almost 3,000 words. as synonyms for drunk. and what was interesting was it was not meant to be a celebration of what is a social ill, but it was to show the phenomenal sort of what english, what the english language is, how many euphemisms, how many different terms we have. and what really got to me was looking at all the other people who had collected lists of drunkenness from their time: tom naine, benjamin bierce, langston hughes had all been sort of fascinated at their moment in many history that there were all these you nhls -- euphemisms used for drunk. and i have many, many helpers, some of whom are in this room tonight, that they go back to shake steer --

that really need itheights, etc. in terms of the deed restriction i thought it was interesting the idea of offense was mentioned now. it seems to me that in that area it might be worth having some sort of a fense in order to separate certain types of individuals, the police should have some sort of input about whether the fence is fair or not. with regards to new projects in this area of the city, it is long over due and hopefully it will be the type of project that is going to benefit the younger kids rather than the older kids because they think the younger kids really need the project more than the older kids. i think that should be made clear from policy viewpoint. and also lastly i would like to say that a project like thischange --curse is still prevalent around the city. >> supervisor wiener: other any other members of the public who would like to comment? seeing on the public comment is closed. >> supervisor kim: i would like to make a motion to forward that to the board. >> supervisor wiener: can we take that? motion is approved. item number two. ordinance amending the planning
